Riverside is a gorgeous setting and the people who work there are very helpful. My wedding is booked for October 15th 2017 and I couldn't be more excited. Very happy and I have only heard good things from everyone who has used them that I know.

Riverside Receptions was the perfect choice for us! From our first conversations with Riverside staff it was clear their customer service was exceptional. Every visit, phone call, and email with Amy, Janelle, Frances, and Tina was received with cheerfulness and professionalism. They were incredibly responsive, and followed through on every detail we requested in the planning process. We had about 150 guests (from a guest list of about 205) and used the second floor space. All details were arranged perfectly prior to our guests' arrival. Amy introduced us to her assistant dining staff supervisor promptly so we knew who our point of contact was throughout the evening for any requests--none needed since everything was perfect! They pride themselves on ensuring only two tables are served by 1 waiter which means very attentive service throughout the night. The food was delicious with great portion sizes and a nice presentation (we also enjoyed the lovely tasting they arrange for their couples and up to 4 guests in the months leading to the wedding date). The view of the river is what makes Riverside so iconic in the area but all other details offer beautiful rustic, classic charm. The pricing for our size of event was very reasonable in the Chicagoland area. We were happy that Riverside had many preferred partner vendors such as the Cakery. This helped everything go smoothly as these vendors collaborate often, and helped us save. Another key feature is that Riverside is a "one stop shop" providing in-house service staff, tables, chairs, linens, and china, etc. -- no need to hunt down piecemeal vendors. And the space has a big dance floor! Riverside Receptions will forever be a special place to us. Thank you so much for making our night exactly what we hoped for and providing a great experience for our guests on the River!

My husband and I could not be happier with how our wedding turned out - everything was handled extremely professionally, from first booking to the final moments of our day. The staff patiently listened to all of my instructions and special requests, and decorated exactly the way we envisioned everything to look. Amy was our day of coordinator, and was seriously a life saver - she is so professional, calming and kind, and helped us all stay on track. Without her guidance, I would have been a nervous wreck! She never made us feel rushed or like she didn't have time for us, and she genuinely cared about every detail. The food was also INCREDIBLE!! Both my husband and I are allergic to peanuts, and had a few other dietary requests for our wedding guests - Amy handled these flawlessly and made special accommodations for us. We got so many compliments on the food - it was unforgettable. Thank you Riverside for giving us the best day of our lives!!!

I don't think I can find the words to explain how perfect this venue was and is. You know how you go to weddings and its just wedding food? This place. Man. Everyone talked about how amazing the food was and it WAS!! Frances was amazing and our day was perfect. It is a unique and quaint venue and perfect for our style. We got married 1-7-17 and asked that they keep up the winter/Christmas decorations and it was beyond beautiful. This was the only venue we looked at and we knew we wanted to get married there! After that everything just fell into place! So picturesque, perfect, professional, accommodating and amazing food. Loved our special day and would do it exactly the same!

Frances and Riverside Receptions did a wonderful job on our wedding. We had our ceremony downstairs with cocktail hour following and then the reception upstairs and everything went wonderfully. The staff was very attentive all throughout the night. The food was wonderful and I received so many compliments on the Boursin mashed potatoes (they are a must!). RIverside also was able to set up a TV in the upstairs bar so that the Cubs game could be played for our guests. Everything went so smoothly at Riverside, I did NOT have to worry about one thing; I would recommend this venue to anyone!

Great location for our ceremony and reception. The staff took care of everything and made sure we were able to utilize all of our minimum since we had a small event. Food was excellent; facility was perfect! And great location in downtown Geneva.

Our daughter Amanda and her fiancé Derek got married at Riverside receptions on September 9, 2016. Francis and all the staff went way out of their way to make their wedding and stunning . The food was amazing it was and just wedding food if you know what I mean and the cake was delicious ! I highly highly recommend riverside receptions for someone who wants a one of a kind and beautiful wedding venue ! Even though it is going on their first year my husband and I still reminisce about the beautiful wedding day you gave her ! Thank you again for all your kindness and support we will never forget you. With warmest regards Mr. and Mrs. Nicholas Chervinko and of course our wonderful newlyweds Mr. and Mrs. Derek Leras ❤️

I had big dreams of a city wedding, but after looking into over two dozen venues unsuccessfully, I had hit a breaking point. That's when a friend suggested a few places and there was one on the list I had never heard of -- Riverside Receptions. After visiting the venue, my fiance and I were in love. The views were gorgeous and the venue itself has a lot of personality and charm. The staff runs a tight ship and several of our guests complimented on not only how good the food was, but also how great and speedy the service was. Everyone at Riverside was easy to work with and made sure our day went off without a hitch. The other perk to this venue as opposed to others we looked at was that SO MUCH was included. Not only are the caterers on site, but the cake and centerpieces were handled by the venue as well, so the number of vendors we had to coordinate with was much more manageable. Now that our wedding has come and gone, I could not be happier to have had my wedding in Geneva, IL. While not a big Chicago wedding, it was more affordable, more charming, less expensive, and such a great space. Plus, Geneva is a great place for weddings; the perfect getaway for friends in the city, and a charming location for suburban and out-of-town guests. A hidden gem in Geneva!

From start to finish Riverside was amazing. Great communication and willingness. The food was great, not just your typical blah banquet food, it was delicious. The decor turned out beautiful and the head person, Francis, was there to make sure everything was perfect. Weddings are pricey but Riverside was reasonable and we got every dollars worth.
